New Online Course Details Life Cycle Assessment of Concrete Buildings
NRMCA has announced a new course titled Life Cycle Assessment of Concrete Buildings in the October issue of Architect magazine and in Hanley Wood’s online university. When looking at the environmental impact of a building, it is important to assess every stage of the environmental life cycle: from material extraction to product manufacturing, to building operations and maintenance, through end-of-life. Concrete offers environmental attributes that help reduce overall environmental life cycle impacts of a building. This course explores how life cycle assessment can be used to measure and lower the environmental impacts of buildings.
As part of the Build with Strength initiative to educate the building and design communities on the benefits of ready mixed concrete, NRMCA has published four courses in Architect magazine and Hanley Wood University, including:
• Life Cycle Assessment of Concrete Buildings (Print Course)
• Concrete's Contribution to LEED v4 (Print Course)
• Insulating Concrete Forms for Commercial Construction (Print Course)
• Insulating Concrete Forms for Multifamily Residential Construction (Print Course)
Anyone can take the courses; they are free. For more information, contact Lionel Lemay at Llemay@nrmca.org or 847-918-7101.
